    Isn't it funny how fast our sewing space spreads out when our kids move and give us room?

    Very nice sewing room. I would take over the room also. We have a Granddaughter living with us. She goes to school and works part time. I will take over her room for sewing when she moves out. I'm not in a hurry for her to move. Living with us keeps me from worrying about her.

    My thoughts exactly. LOL! My three kids (now all in their 40's) moved out ages and ages ago. I turned the boys' room into my hobby room as soon as the last one left. I was a bit sad when pulling down their clipper ship wallpaper though.

    I also took over a bedroom for my sewing room for awhile but it was too cold in the winter so now I use the den. I have to tell you that when our youngest son moved out, I gave him his bedroom furniture and the living room furniture (he slept on the couch and loveseat more than his bed). He was 21 and just bought his first house. 2 years later he sold his house and moved back home (with his indoor dog). He let the dog sleep with him so I wouldn't let him sleep on my guest bed. They stayed in the den and used the hide away bed. Lasted about 3 months then he moved out. I didn't want him to get to comfortable....hehehe

    Your space is so sunny and light. Love it.

    If you find your back aches after cutting fabric, Try putting your table on bed risers Tinker

    I have an empty nest. However I am using one bedroom as my sewing room and another is slowly filling up with scraps. Lol never met a scrap I didn't like!
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!

    Putting that table in the corner is perfect for quilting. Good for you!
